When I rolled out of town on the unpaved road I was fifty-seven dollars from being broke Kissed my mama and my sisters and I said goodbye And with my suitcase packed I wiped the tears from my eyes Times they were tough growing up at home My daddy lost the farm when I was two years old Took a job at the prison working second shift And that’s the last time I let them take what should be his Cause all I want to do is make a little cash Cause I worked all the bad jobs bustin' my ass I want to buy back the farm And bring my mama home some wine And turn back the clock on the cruel hands of time When I hit the city I joined the band Started singing in the bars and running with the men But the men they brought me problems And the drinking caused me grief I thought I'd found a friend but I only found a thief Soon I settled down with a married man We had a couple babies, started living off the land But my firstborn died and I cried out to God Is there anybody out there looking down on me at all? Cause all I want to do is make something last But I can't see the future, I can't change the past I want to buy back the farm And bring my mama home some wine Turn back the clock on the cruel hands of time Still I keep a'running fast as I can Trying to make something honest with my own two hands And I ain't got the breath to say another bad word So if I ever said it wrong won't you forget what you heard Cause all I want to do is make my own path Cause I know what I am, I know what I have I want to buy back the farm And bring my mama home some wine Turn back the clock on the cruel hands of time Cruel hands of time [x3]
